here and what's going on, the bottom line, this is the knee jerk society of america rearing its ugly head again and to get to your point, when the games start lasting the time to fly from here in atlanta to mars, the people will be screaming about instant replay. >> all right. we'll have to see about that but the league claims it can review a umpire's call in less than two minutes. do you think that's realistic? >> let's say, for instance, that's the truth. all right. say if that's the true, what they're not telling us, the supporters of instant replay are all the other horror stories. for instance, each manager gets three challenges. but if a manager wins the challenge, he gets another challenge. and then another challenge. so that's more time right there. the pitcher, all right, during these challenges, the pitcher is not warming up or barely warming up. he wants to warm up after the decision is made. that's more time and then the other thing is, even though they're saying that you're not allowed to argue after these challenges are decided, we all know that arguing is in the dna of

, nothing is more symbolic of the united states of america siding with the generals. we have no credibility. we do have influence, but when you don't use that influence, then you do not have that influence. we could be cutting off the aid, the spare parts and maintenance of these military equipment that we've given the egyptians is important to their capabilities. >> wait -- >> tourism, economic assistance, business, the imf loan. there are many areas where we could exercise influence over the generals and we're not doing any of it and we're not sticking with our values. >> and yet when you argued earlier, trying as you say to give the military leaders a chance, you argued that to cut off u.s. aid to egypt might harm israel. others also add that once you cut off aid, you've lost any kind of leverage. there is nothing after you've cut u.s. aid. >> well, again, we thought that at that particular time that it was not the right thing to do because we wanted to give them an opportunity to get back on the path to democracy. obviously that's not the case. as i say, our interests, our v
